Join GridGain Systems Product Manager Denis Magda as he introduces the newest features in Apache Ignite 2.0 including the dramatically improved memory architecture and enhanced SQL DDL support.
Join GridGain Systems Product Manager Denis Magda as he introduces the newest features in Apache Ignite 2.0 including the dramatically improved memory architecture and enhanced SQL DDL support. Apache Ignite 2.0 is a turnkey release which blends a distributed in-memory SQL database (IMDB) and an in-memory key-value data grid (IMDG) under one data management platform. It is also a necessary stepping stone ahead of the Apache Ignite 2.1 release which will be focused around native disk persistence, allowing Ignite to operate equally well in-memory and on-disk.
Telecommunications is no longer as simple as connecting a bunch of wires and physically maintaining them in order to deliver a dial tone. Today’s telecommunications providers face myriad challenges around big data and analytics. Data, and unlimited data plans, is stretched telco networks to provide capacity and services that no one had dreamed of even 15 years ago. Telcos are constantly monitoring and upgrading networks to support the insatiable hunger for data. The network is only part of the answer though.
Data is critical to the success of financial services companies. Market data, customer data, trade data, and compliance data are retained, processed and analyzed to help firms not only stay afloat but also ahead of the competition. During this webinar, we will discuss the different types of financial data, ways financial and fintech companies process it, and show how in-memory computing is used to instantaneously analyze and make decisions based on internally and externally available data.  We will discuss:
The In-Memory Computing Summit Europe, located in Amsterdam, is the only industry-wide events which focuses on the full range of in-memory computing-related technologies and solutions. The conference is attended by technical decision makers, implementers and developers who make or influence purchasing decisions about in-memory computing, Big Data, Fast Data, IoT and HPC solutions. Hosted in Amsterdam, the event is a meeting place for in-memory computing experts from across Europe and Asia.
There is a myth that online financial operations need to be delegated to relational databases due to their ACID transaction support. But today, most of these disk-based relational databases cannot keep pace with the rapidly growing volumes of data that are becoming a bottleneck in the overall transactional system. There are two solutions to deal with this issue: upgrade to more expensive hardware or migrate to a distributed platform.

Meet with the GridGain experts at Booth # 710. Strata + Hadoop World is the largest conference of its kind in the world, a deep-immersion event where data scientists, innovators, and executives get up to speed on emerging techniques and technologies.
Come visit GridGain's booth (#7121) at JavaOne San Francisco 2017as we sponsor the premier conference dedicated to leading applications built on the Java platform.  For more information visit: https://www.oracle.com/javaone/  
The In-Memory Computing Summit North America, located in Silicon Valley, is the only industry-wide events which focuses on the full range of in-memory computing-related technologies and solutions. The conference is attended by technical decision makers, implementers and developers who make or influence purchasing decisions about in-memory computing, Big Data, Fast Data, IoT and HPC solutions. Hosted in South San Francisco, the event is a meeting place for in-memory computing experts from across North America and the Pacific Rim.
Past Events
In-memory computing brings unlimited performance and scalability to even the most demanding business applications and their accompanying data sets. Moving data from disk to memory brings enormous performance gains. Boosting performance and scalability is of great value as it makes existing applications better and paves the way towards a memory first architecture that opens new horizons in computing.
Join us at the Miami Hadoop User Group's meetup May 17 at 6 p.m. for pizzas, beverages and a great talk about Apache Spark and Apache Ignite. We'll also have some cool limited-edition GridGain t-shirts, stickers and other cool stuff to raffle off.  Denis Magda, GridGain Systems product manager and Apache Ignite PMC Chair, will discuss: "Apache Ignite and Apache Spark: This is Where Fast Data Meets the IoT." 
In this webinar hosted by GridGain Systems and 451 Research, you’ll hear about the compelling drivers for in-memory computing technologies: especially in-memory databases, data grids, and platforms. 451 Research’s data platforms analyst Jason Stamper will explain how in-memory computing helps to overcome many of the challenges faced by the modern enterprise when it comes to data processing and analytics. He will also gaze into his crystal ball to predict how in-memory computing technologies will evolve in coming years.
Join Christos Erotocritou, Solutions Architect at GridGain Systems to learn about in-memory computing technologies and their advantages over traditional architectures. He will discuss use cases and reference architectures Apache Ignite. OSDC offers a unique opportunity to meet with Open Source professionals and insiders, gather and share expertise over 3 days of presentations, hands-on workshops and social networking. OSDC particularly addresses experienced administrators and architects.
ApacheCon gathers the ASF committers and open source community to learn and collaborate on the technologies and projects driving the future of open source, web technologies and cloud computing.
Apache: Big Data gathers the developers, operators and users working in Big Data for education and collaboration across Apache big data related projects and technologies.
Visit GridGain at booth #939. Internet of Things World returns to Silicon Valley  for 3 days of learning, discovery, partying and networking. Covering the largest span of both industrial and consumer IoT...
Apache Flink meets Apache Ignite Join us in London on May 10 at 6:30 p.m. at the Apache Flink London Meetup where GridGain Technical Evangelist Akmal B. Chaudhri will introduce Apache Ignite. Click here for details and to sign-up.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is more than a bunch of sensors. Sensors and embedded devices gather data about the surrounding environment, but what you do with this data is what truly matters. A bunch of sensors won’t optimize your business. Collecting and analyzing the data that those sensors produce will.
The Insurance industry is undergoing significant changes.  In addition to economic and political uncertainty, insurers face investment income pressure from low interest rates. Coupled with this are the challenges of social and regulatory changes based on new customer expectations and government and employer policies.
Learn how to use an in-memory computing platform like Apache® Ignite™ and GridGain to develop high performance and highly scalable mobile apps in this webinar.
Denis Magda will be presenting "Accelerate MySQL® for Demanding OLAP and OLTP Use Cases with Apache® Ignite™" at Percona Live 2017.
Service-oriented architectures (SOAs) are used to build flexible, independently deployable software systems. Microservices decompose services down to small pieces and use lightweight protocols to allow processes to communicate with each other over a network. This architectural approach is becoming increasingly popular, especially in high-availability systems. However, microservices-based solutions can become victims of their own success as greater and greater demands are placed on the systems that use them.
The payments industry is being disrupted.  Mobile payments, instantaneous payments and embedded payments are changing the way consumers interact with their financial institutions.  The current payments paradigm requires financial services and fintech companies to upgrade their digital infrastructure to support processing transactions in a low-latency, scalable and secure manner. 
Vladimir Ozerov will be presenting "Scalability in a distributed in-memory systems" JPoint - International Java-conference for experienced Java-developers. In 2017 held the fifth in a row JPoint: it grows, it becomes even more interesting and hardcore every year. Each year, the conference brings together more than 1000 participants.
